Editorial Reviews


«The seventeenth-century historian, Louis Sébastien, Le Nain de Tillemont's sixteen volumes of Mémoires pour servir à l'histoire ecclésiastique constitute a monument in the historiography of Christianity. The thirteenth volume of Tillemont's work offers the first modern biography of St. Augustine. Frederick Van Fleteren's second volume of a planned three-volume English translation of this biography renders Tillemont's French text into a smooth, easily intelligible prose that draws the English reader into a fascinating account of the life of Augustine, one constructed from primary sources taken most often from manuscripts. Tillemont's biography is still consulted today by scholars and biographers of Augustine for its rich collection of sources and meticulous effort at historical accuracy. Van Fleteren's translation will become a classic among resource works on Augustine in the English-speaking world.» (Fr. Robert Dodaro, director of the Augustinian Patristic Institute at the Pontifical Lateran University)
